Radiation Treatment

Last updated: January 2018

My psa first time was 18.9 and second time was 17.8. I was 63 last year when found it. I’m a factor 9 hemophiliac so radiation was my only choice. They give me a hormone treatment (shot in hip) 30 days prior to radiation. Worse shot I ever had. Could hardly walk and no pressure on that hip. I had 42 radiation treatments. First psa was .57 and a month later was .22. They test again in 2 weeks. Hoping and praying it could continues to come down. They had to do biopsy in hospital due to hemophilia. Put me to sleep and I had to stay overnight. I had to get two treatments of plasma also. Going to fight fight fight.
